Thanks a Latte

Fridays usually recall for a list of my favorite/loving things.
Signing my friend's yearbooks yesterday had me thinking lately. This year has really flown by and it deeply saddens me how much things have changed. The ending of the school year bewilders me always and as impelling as it seems for summer to instigate, we can all take note to the bittersweet memories. Yesterday was my chorus teacher's last concert. Ever. We took full advantage and literally went out with a bang. When the final 'It's Time to Say Goodbye' song was underway, I felt deeply moved and teared up inside. Before the final concert, I spent the last half-hour with good friends huddled together in a huge group singing acoustic songs on the guitar and swaying along with smiles plastered on our faces because we knew how much we were going to miss these good times. I love the idea that music has a way of bringing people together. Goodbyes to me, are the hardest things to say. Though it's dreadful enough not being able to see many faces every single day, we still have summer. And we can simply make the most of it.
Have a splendid Memorial Day weekend!

{I reap the benefits of staring enviously at dream vacations as summer draws near! 9 more days of school and then the start of Summer 2011!}
 {Starbucks is my second home. Anyone in love with their delish fraps and macchiatos as much as I am?}
 {new blooming flowers found in my front yard.}
 {coral nail polish that I absolutely adore.}
 {cut-out dresses in this shade of blue with dazzling sequins reminds me of the beautiful beaches and their crystalline water at Wrightsville.}
 {I'm pretty much attracted to anything sparkly or metallic. And with these eye-catching colors, who could resist?}

I was in chorus as well, such a great experience! Also, yes.....

I'm thinking all of my photos in Rome need to be shifted to Paris soon... ;)
